Wow, no slippery road/ a pole but ABS system not in good order?
Speeding?
Than you commit a crime to drive tourist passengers with such a Van
And the thai employers are also full responsible

I hope China officials and Chinese insurances get into this with full force!
I suggested last week a special excuse/wai vice-governor to visit hospitals, is such already realized? Or not yet a budget?
